This week’s episode of The Flash was different than most because the “villain-of-the-week” didn’t matter all that much. The “Monster”, a giant Godzilla hologram controlled by a tormented teen, was instead used to support the conflicts Team Flash are facing. In general, The Flash is a character driven show, but this week was a little too much.

Last week’s episode was kind of filler but they are back on track which could not come at a better time with Marvel’s next movie, Doctor Strange, releasing this Friday. Now promos of this episode showed that it would include the origin of the show’s incarnation of Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes’, origin story and it did not disappoint.

Now they can’t touch the main story every episode which creates the need for “filler” episodes, episodes with stories of minimal significance and are used to stretch certain plot points. Gotham has been one of the guiltiest shows when it come to filler as it always seems like 3/4 of a particular season is filler which is one of the reasons that this show is disappointing. This episode was no exception. Read below for more.
HBO’s new thriller, Westworld, is halfway through its first season. Going into it I thought I knew what to expect, but the show has turned into something completely different. The show is not so much an action-thriller as much as it’s a mystery/suspense thriller. This show was supposed to be about some badass cowboy-robots revolting against human, but Instead, Westworld has forced me to think, ponder, and analyze everything that’s going on. This isn’t a bad thing, just not what I was expecting.

When they told us the second section of American Horror Story: Roanoke would see the deaths of everybody but one, I got excited. Chapter 7, however, was a big surprise because the bloodshed started right away a never let up, leaving me to wonder if they were going to kill everyone this episode. They didn’t, but they sure did try.
Just when I thought season 20 of South Park and its various subplots were too random and wired to work together, Trey Parker and Matt Stone are starting to make it work. Episode 6 finally saw everything start to come together. Cartman showed signs of his old self, Mr. Garrison’s part didn’t seem like added filler, and the Danish finally fought back against Skankhunt and the rest of the internet trolls. It wasn’t the best episode of South Park but it was a heck of a lot better than what we’ve seen most of the season.

This week’s episode of The Flash suffered from a lack of depth like several episodes have in the past. It’s one thing to have a rotating list of metahumans to give Barry and his team trouble, but wasting cool characters each week is a loss for both the show and its fans. “The New Rouges” was no different.
